About time I did something on here.
As I pulled into a very cold, and frosty car park at the local lake yesterday, Trevor pulled in too.
After I fed the Crows, and we looked at the feeders, we made our way round the lake.
Minus six, a thick hoar frost, and blue sunny skies.
A perfect day.
So much to see and take pictures of. And lots of birds too.
A Goldfinch on a very frozen and frosty Teasel.
Quite a few different birds were seen during the visit; (I made it 46), but I think the real star was a stunning fox.
Quite a bit of the lake had frozen in various places, and at the far end of the south lake a few ducks were swimming close to ice, and a group of gulls were stood out on the ice.
And this had attracted the attention of a fox. There is a small island at the far end, and the fox was on the island, carefully sniffing the ice before checking out the possibilities of breakfast.
Once he had decided the ice was strong enough to take his weight, he proceeded to march across the ice.
A real beauty, and looked in very good condition. A bit of a dangerous thing to do, but he seemed to know what he was doing. Hungry, or just very curious? Well he didn't catch anything, and eventually made his way back to the island.
A real treat to see such a beautiful animal so close.
A shortish video to end with.
Enjoy your day
